  • A Thank You From The Stantons

    Very dear church family,

    Can you believe we have come to the end of our first term of service as missionaries? I hope you feel like proud parents. With your love and support Larry and I have shared Jesus' love in LIBERIA, HUNGARY, SERBIA and GREECE. We have discipled students, comforted refugees and brought warmth and fellowship to the poor. Look what the Holy Spirit has equipped us to do together. And now, at the start of our new five-year term of service, we look forward with JOYFUL ANTICIPATION to what Father God will do next. We ask you to prayerfully consider continuing your faithful partnership.

    In His powerful love,

    Larry & your Becky Stanton
